Nothing shocked the celebrity world or fans alike more than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce. The dynamic duo had been together for years, worked together, and started a loving family with one another, only to call it quits after 2 years of marriage.
Accusations of Brad’s troubles with substance abuse were a large cause for concern and the apparent deterioration of their marriage, though they have been trying to coparents amicably.
While the papers haven’t been finalized, the stars are living in separate homes, and it appears that Brad has already moved on from his longtime love.
Rumor has it that Brad Pitt has begun dating 21-year-old actress Ella Purnell, and if they’re 32 year age gap doesn’t surprise you, this next piece of news definitely will. Ella apparently has ties to Brad’s ex as well. The starlet played a young Angelina in the 2014 movie ‘Maleficent’, while Jolie played the lead.
Needless to say, if these rumors are true, Angelina will not be happy about the new lady in Brad’s life.
This is the first report of Brad Pitt dating anyone after his very public split, but according to a source, he’s very happy with the young actress and is “taken” with her “spunky, funny demeanor and formidable acting skills."
"He's taking things as they come," the source continued. "He hasn't wanted to get serious with anyone."
Brad allegedly cast Purnell in his upcoming TV series, ‘Sweetbitter’ and the two must have hit it off right away.
"It's only a matter of time before Brad takes their relationship to the next level," said the insider.
With the celebrities working so closely alongside each other during filming, there’s no saying what could happen. According to the source, Angelina isn’t at all happy about the romance going on between them.
"She's furious about Brad's interest in Ella and her being cast in Sweetbitter," said the source. "She absolutely hates that Brad is cavorting with someone who played the teenage version of her in a film."
Angelina has said in the past that she “doesn’t like” being single at all, and has tried to re-focus her efforts back into film, and of course, caring for her children.
We’ll have to stay tuned to see if the rumors are true, perhaps it will just be a matter of time before Brad is walking the red carpets with a younger version of Angelina on his arm.
